The good news is that with the last of the money collected yesterday I have sent the order off to Andy at CH sports. I am just waiting to hear back for a final price before I send the cheque off. So we should be about 4 weeks away from being kitted out.
The bad news is the short covers which everyone has taken an interest in are going to cost extra if people want them. Andy said they cost about £25/£26 each and they can't do the patches on their own. I will gauge interest in the short covers in training next week and see who wants what. If there is enough interest we can put a seperate order in for these.
Looks like the font we will be getting is the standard one as seen on Panthers shirts and the jerseys used in the last playoffs. However there will be NO numbers on the sleeves or the chest.
Any other questions, feel free to give me a shout.
Okay, just had confirmation back. The jerseys are going to be £50 each and the socks are £9.50 each.
So I owe everyone who had one pair of socks 50p each and everyone who had two pairs of socks a £1 each. I think through the team that adds up to £16. So I can either give everyone their change or maybe look at investing the money in the team i.e. get bibs, more pucks or any other equipment we need. I could also stick it in the kitty which would go towards getting a free session sometime in the near future. What does everyone want to do?
I know mate, I wanted the numbers on the arms to, but they have already knocked roughly £2 off each jersey (VAT) to keep them within the agreed price range as the price originally qouted were without VAT. It would mean evryone paying an extra £5 and I doubt every is willing to do that after just shelling out £60. It wouldn't look right with just having them and some not so I decided not to bother.
Kev reckons pucks are a bit short to be honest. We are okay when Andy comes as he has more pucks. But if Andy doesn't come one week and we need to use Kev's pucks then we will be short.
